This is the 3rd book in the series and the worst although book 2 was almost as bad. The book starts off good and the story moves along and then...filler and more filler and I had to skip whole pages to see what happens next. *** Spoiler Alert** The interesting thing about a series is that the story continues usually with secondary characters from the first book. This it true of the Stud Club Trilogy. The heroes are all introduced in the first book and each hero has his own story. A major problem in this series is that Julian Bellamy, one of the so called heroes, was unlikeable in both of the first 2 books. So by the time we get to his story, who wants to read about him? I had to put that aside to even start the Julian/Lily story. And as stated above it was good for the first few chapters. But thru out the book Julian spends pages telling Lily (and the reader) how awful he is! His poor upbringing... blackmailing aristocrats and final the worse: his double identity and making his fortune in trade. He even marries Lily with a made up name. And his conspiracy theory on Leo's murder takes up pages in all of the books and go up in smoke with Faraday's revelations (which are fantastical and as unbelievable as Julian's). My advice would be to read and enjoy the first book and leave it at that. Tessa Dare is hit or miss with her books, but there are many worth reading so why bother with the bad ones? I wish I hadn't .
I love Tessa Dare!! This book almost seemed that it was written by someone else. The first book in the series was really good and the second book was just good, the third was horrible. The H was unlikable from the first book to the last. H & h were so one-dimensional and even the love scenes were contrived, unbelievable and boring. I had to force myself into finishing the book. So disappointing because this is the last of the series and I think this makes all of Tessa’s books that I’ve now read, w/ the exception of maybe a novella from the Spindle Cove series. Hate to end my relationship with this author on such a bad note when she has given me such a delightful time reading her other books. Oh well..... When A Scot Ties The Knot is my fave Tessa Book.
